Hyundai launches the LPG Bayon on the market, yet another version for the Korean crossover, after the petrol and mild hybrid variants at 48 V, in dealerships for a year. An inclined time for the sector, to put gas cars back in the spotlight, it seems. “It is an all-Italian love for LPG – confirmed by the manufacturer – the motorists who buy Liquefied Petroleum Gas cars have increased by 2% from the previous year and today they are 6% of the total in Italy”. A love that could not give up, considering that the drivers of our house have again returned to do the math at the refueling stations: the prices in June 2022 are almost 2 euros – according to the data published by the analyzes of the Ministry of Ecological Transition – while LPG moves between 0.837 and 0.849 euros / liter.
After i10, i20 also the Hyundai Bayon crossover on LPG
Hyundai, therefore, also proposes Bayon to LPG: a process, carried out first with the city car and the utility car in the price list, and then developed with the Casa urban crossover. Clearly they are all models designed for drivers looking for design, good value for money, practicality. It is not for nothing that Bayon has been developed with all the stylistic features of a 2.0 minivan: in 418 cm it boasts high driving, space on board – the wheelbase is 258 cm – and simple and intuitive technology, with various latest generation safety systems.
Hyundai Bayon on LPG: a mileageist is born
Let’s start by saying that the LPG version was born in collaboration with BRC, guaranteed by Hyundai for 5 years, with unlimited mileage: which can make the buyer rest assured. In addition, it allows a load capacity of 393 liters (instead of 411), up to 1,187 liters with the rear seats folded down: a negligible loss, compared to the 1.2 MPI petrol-only version. In a nutshell, three centimeters in height are lost, due to the cylinder in the space for the spare wheel: 47l of tank that allow a declared distance of 650 km. Obviously, at the wheel, Bayon starts on petrol and then automatically converts to gas, and then returns to petrol when needed. Result? Powered by the 81.8 bhp 1.2 MPI, the model travels around 1,300 km in total (in combined WLTP cycle) before stopping again at the distributor.
From 15,450 euros
A “mileage driver” prepared to face the urban vicissitudes, already in its basic version. The XTech boasts roof bars, Bluetooth and driver assistance technologies such as the alert that recognizes approaching vehicles, pedestrians and cycles; High Beam Assist for automatic switching from high beam to low beam when a vehicle is encountered; the Lane Keeping Assist which warns in case of skidding. The price, with financing, starts from 15,450 Euros, if the state eco-incentives are foreseen (before they run out) and the scrapping of an old car (up to 4 Euros). For the most demanding, Bayon is also richer and hi-tech with the XLine version: the 10.25 ” Cluster Supervision appears inside, and the smartphone can be recharged wirelessly, connecting wirelessly via Android Auto & Apple Car Play. For parking there is the rear view camera with front and rear parking sensors. Prices starting from 17,600 euros.
